"De mortuis nil nisi bonum"--Chilon of Sparta|
Although I live in Oklahoma, many of the memorials I have created and tombstone photos I have added are for the counties of Clay, Dickinson, Riley and Geary in Kansas. Please visit my homepage for Clay County genealogy--it contains links to the other counties mentioned, too.
Please use the "Edit" button at the top right of the memorial to request transfers or to add information. If requesting a transfer, please note how this person is related to you--not because of any FAG policy, just because I'm nosy!
I want to give a special shout out to Emily for the many obituaries she has submitted for Fairlawn Cemetery in OKC. I know that I and especially the families of those whose obits she sent appreciate it!
Well if it ever comes time,
that it comes time to go,
Sis' pack up your fiddle,
Sis' pack up your bow.
If I can't dance with you,
then I won't dance at all,
I'll just sit this one out,
with my back to the wall.
I'd rather not hear pretty music again,
If I can't hear your fiddle on a magnolia wind.
If I can't catch your scent on a magnolia wind.

FYI, Take a look at your entries at "Stanton" cemetery. That is the wrong cemetery listing/ name. I see several duplicates that already have pages at Chester-Stanton.

Are you related to Thomas Holland (Find A Grave # 65681762)? Where did you get his picture?
|Andrew Michaelsen||RE: Bodholdts/Mikkelsens|
Thank you very much. I have never had the pleasure of visiting Buena Vista County. Most of my relatives were in Clinton and Jackson Counties in the east and Carroll and Crawford Counties in the West. One branch of my wife's family trekked from DuPage County Illinois to Hardin County Iowa to South Dakota and back to Aurora Illinois. She also had family that settled in Clayton County and stopped at Plymouth County before heading to South Dakota. I have been planning a trip to western Iowa, South Dakota and western Minnesota for a couple of years, but my nieces and nephews are inconveniently getting married and foiling my plans.

Thanks for the additional information. It's volunteers like yourself that make Find A Grave such a great site for ancestry research. Thanks again.
|Mary Christensen||RE: Martin Ole Christensen|
Is Marthe Christoffersdotter who your referring to?
|Mary Christensen||RE: Martin Ole Christensen|
I will send you a group sheet of the family. Thanks so much for the link.
|Mary Christensen||Martin Ole Christensen|
Hello Sheryl...so happy to connect with you here. Thank you for the link you sent me. I will have to check it out. Martin is my Great - Great Grandfathers son and my grandfather Christoffer Christensen's brother. I was fortunate as a child to live in the same house they all lived in, in Alta, Iowa and I was about 5-6 yrs old when my Grt grandmother Maria Kajsa Fredriksdotter of Sweden passed away. I was so fortunate to have met her. All the pictures I have for passed down to me a few years ago. Feel free to copy any of them that you wish. The only picture I have of Martin is the one I have posted as a small child. Thank you for your reply.

True the Valley Falls New Era sometimes refers to HDE as "Rash" or "Uncle Rash" but just as often refers to him as "Rush" or "Uncle Rush". The Farmer's Vindicator of Valley Falls refers to him as "Rush". The Leavenworth Times and Winchester Star (Kansas) refer to him as "Rush" and "Uncle Rush". It seems the "Uncle Rush" appellation became more common in his latter years. His grandson, my uncle, who was also named Horatio D. Erhart was commonly called by all "Rush". My uncle's son, also named Horatio D. Erhart was called by some "Rus", I assume to make a distinction from his father. I have a copy of the 1912 obituary for Horatio Erhart from the Winchester Star but it uses no nickname for the deceased. I have a short obituary for his wife also from the Winchester Star. I'll post them on FindaGrave (sometime!). I think whoever ordered or made the monument for "Rush" got it right. Thanks again for the picture.
|Joe Erhart Wallace||RE: Photo source|
Yes that is he. I had never seen a picture of my great grandfather before. Many thanks to you! How do you keep track of the thousands of pictures you have shared?
